First of all, thanks, man!

I've always liked/wanted a bronze watch so I got a San Martin 62 Mas homage. The dial was lovely but I started thinking what if it had a Seiko face, and how unusually cool it would look as Seiko as far as I know don't do bronze watches.

As the San Martin has a Seiko movement it wasn't hard to find a replacement Seiko dial. The swapping out process was pretty easy, with only making sure the hands were fitted and set up properly being a bit tricky. I also painted the chapter ring black, as the minute markers didn't look right to me. After putting on a very good quality leather strap the mod was completed, and I'm extremely happy with the end result.

There are loads of instructional videos on YouTube if you fancy having a go. One word of warning though, it can be addictive lol

Hardlex crystal, I've had so many watches [email protected] because of the seemingly OK Hardex getting scratched. I'd never get a hardlex again !

Making the most of the Sun

It's a beautiful sunny day here in Scotland, and I love solar watches. Do they play a part in your collection?
